I’ve Got a Confession…

So I was recently re-watching this Chirs Harris comparo that isn’t really a comparo… just watch the film and you’ll get it.

Day 8 with the 2011

Day 6 with the 2011, originally uploaded by touge-n00b.

Day 8 means the first Autocross! With 450 miles on the clock! YES, I am crazy, and YES it was fun! This car is just so much better in this environment than the Legacy!

And yes, that IS a GT-R next to me. Props to Dr. Brad for not being scared at all to run an 80K car!

And I know I promised you a one week impression of the 2011. I’m working on it, no really!

Random Shot(s): G T R

Oh yes, the car everyone loves (and loves to hate), Nissan’s GT-R. Probably one of the most hyped cars of the previous year, and maybe even ever! A fellow iClubber picked one up a couple of weeks ago, and he was cool enough to bring it out to our meet last night. While I didn’t get a proper photo-shoot (yet? heh heh heh), I did get to snap a couple of shots. The GT-R I think looks much better in person then it does in pictures however, so if you’ve never seen one, go do yourself a favor and hunt one down! Now then, who wants to give me a real ride in one??
